S5W-15330: Dean Lockhart (Mid Scotland and Fife)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 20 March 2018

To ask the Scottish Government whether the financial and advisory support that will be offered by the Scottish National Investment Bank will be in addition to that provided by Scottish Enterprise, Highland and Islands Enterprise and the Business Gateway.

Answered by: Keith Brown 29 March 2018

The Implementation Plan recommends that the Bank should work collaboratively with Scottish Enterprise and Highlands and Islands Enterprise as well as the new South of Scotland Enterprise Partnership and key partners supporting Scotland’s company base delivering advisory support for example financial readiness.

The Implementation Plan recommends that the financing activities carried out by Scottish Government and its agencies come under the Bank’s remit to build on the success and skills within current operations. Detailed consideration will be given to this by Ministers at the next stages of planning.
